X4 965 be Overclocking Question

Setup:

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX
ASRock 870 EXTREME3 AM3 AMD 870 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
CORSAIR XMS 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A1600C9


I have just OC'ed my rig to:

4.2MHz


by adjusting my multiplier/voltage to:

x21
1.450v


Temps (w/ Coretemp) :
0% load = 30-34c
100% load = 48-51c
( 1 hour with AMD overdrive stability tester)

Everything seems to be running fine at the moment is there something I am missing or that I need to make sure is correct?

Does anyone have any suggestions about voltage or any settings that could make my rig run "better"?

  1. Yeah, AMD stability test is a crap.

    Download and use y-cruncher (my favorite), LinX, prime95 or OCCT 12+ for full stability, you can do that test overnight.
  2. ^+1 Saint always knows what hes talking about. In my experience Prime 95 gets my CPU 4-5C hotter than the AMD burn test and my early overclock attempt ran the AMD test fine for an hour but prime 95 crashed in 2 mins. Nice overclock if you can get it stable by the way.
  3. ok so i tested with prime 95 for 1 hour , occt 1 hour, linx x5 tests 51gflops, and highest temp was only 59c is that about right?
  4. Temps are a little high, try ti don't go above 55ºC. For full stability you need test the rig for 12+ hours, you can do that test overnight.
